On August 21st, Cyd of New Jersey Isn’t Boring, and myself went to the Galloway Diner. How do I know that precise date? We also went and watched the Eclipse. I took a photo that I’m proud of, which you can see here. Around lunch time at the Galloway Diner, it wasn’t crowded at all. Out of all of the diners I’ve been too, this is one of the biggest.
It’s a stereotypical NJ diner. The outside is chrome, and the inside has multiple booths, tables, and a full sized bar. It’s beautiful and open, so you don’t feel like you’re sitting on top of anyone. As I mentioned, it’s one of the biggest diners I’ve ever been too or even seen!
The coffee was hot and brewed fresh. The waitress also refilled out beverages often. It came from my favorite coffee roaster: Lacas. I have no complaints.
It was the hosts first day, and she did a great job. She was friendly, and I never would have guessed it was her first day on the job. The waitress was friendly and gave us several recommendations. However, the food was much slower to come out than anticipated.
The Galloway diner has several pages including a specials page. I had eaten a few hours earlier and wasn’t running much at the time, so I opted for something lighter. I decided to order the Greek salad with salmon which was a great size, and the presentation was excellent. I will say it’s one of the largest pieces of salad salmon I’ve received. Definitely one of the better diner salads I’ve had. It had everything I liked and nothing I didn’t. The waitress even asked if I wanted anchovies which rarely happens.

I decided to take a black and white cookie to go, and it was great. The cookie was soft with plenty of frosting. It was one of the best cookies I’ve had! Of course, I forgot to take a photo of the actual cookie.
For my coffee, salad with salmon and cookie, the cost was $22. It was a bit more pricey than I anticipated but it wasn’t bad.
Overall Summary/Would I Come Back?
I enjoyed the Galloway Diner, and I would go back. The waitress was friendly, and there was plenty of space. While it’s a bit more pricey for a diner, I don’t have any complaints.
